The kind of treatment given to a breast cancer patient depends on a number of factors that ought to be assessed in detail, as each of the cases to be treated needs an accurate analysis for the results to be as favorable as possible.
Options may be applied individually or by making a schematic where different treatments are combined such as: surgery, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy.
The services we provide are extremely comprehensive and cover what breast cancer patient needs, among which are:
Last generation full digital mammography (3-D mammography), supplemented with the most modern ultrasound device managed by radiologists with specialized training in breasts.
Mammography is a breast x-ray, which nowadays works as the most effective tool in detecting cancer in its first stage, when it is small and easy to treat and eradicate.
From 40 years of age onwards, women must have a mammography performed every year. If you are not 40 years of age yet and there is a family history of breast cancer or if you are concerned about your breasts, you must consider a mammography or, other tests, such as, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the breast.
It is also important that you have a clinical test on your breasts at least every 3 years, beginning at age 20 and once a year after you are 40 years of age. Mammography may also be used to diagnose any breast problem.
A mammography is very accurate but it is not perfect. This may detect breast cancer before you feel it. However, at times, a mammography cannot find cancer.
This is the most common breast cancer treatment at an early stage. It also employed after chemotherapy in locally advanced stages and in metastatic stages with palliative purposes.
There mainly are two types of surgeries:
Armpit lymph node treatment is performed by applying sentinel lymph node techniques or axillar lymph node dissection, depending on each individual case.
Radiotherapy uses ionizing radiations to destroy cancer cells. It only affects the cells in that part of the body under treatment and may be used after the surgery to destroy cancer cells that may remain in the area.
Our modern equipment has the capacity of being extremely accurate in the area to be radiated with less or no secondary effects in areas surrounding the tumor.
Chemotherapy is a medical treatment where certain drugs are administered intravenously or by mouth, which may act as an agent to destruct cancer cells. These drugs may be administered before or after the surgery in the event of metastatic diseases.
If the lab test shows that there are hormone recipients in the breast tumor, then this kind of therapy may be the option to supplement the initial treatment.
